First there was the little black dress, then the little white dress, and now celebs are painting the town in red-hot frocks. From Christa B. Allen in a cutout style by Contrarian New York ($380) to Jessica Alba in a form-fitting sheath to Miranda Kerr in a flirty, lacy Lover number ($1,050), trendsetting A-listers have have been working their red-hued numbers around the globe. Check out what other starlets have been rocking the LRD, how they styled them, and where you can buy a similar dress to get in on the Hollywood trend.
We don't have to tell you why a little black dress is a wardrobe staple for every woman, but sometimes it's necessary to put a slight spin on a classic. While there will always be a time and place to look your black-dress best, balmy Summer weather brings its own style conundrums and often requires something a bit more lightweight. Enter the impossibly Summer-perfect LBD: it's the ideal combination of sexy cocktail frock and breezy beach dress and can easily be dressed up or down depending on your destination. Whether you're heading to a Summer wedding or just need a new, more floaty version of your regular LBD, we've rounded up 15 pieces that are perfect for the warm-weather season. Click through now to see and shop each one.
Jenna Dewan was the picture of travel perfection working colorful ikat Current/Elliott jeans ($167), neon-trim Loeffler Randall sandals ($375), and a sophisticated Hermés tote at LAX. The brunette beauty's vibrant raffia sandals and exaggerated cat eye shades played up her colorful denim, while her off-the-shoulder sweater balanced the look. Capture Jenna's effortlessly chic airport style by pairing her exact jeans and shoes with an oversized sweater or rock her printed bottoms with a bright tank for a bold combo.
Over the weekend, Emma Roberts stepped out in a polished daytime look that's perfect for Spring and Summer. She elevated a pair of denim cutoffs via a short-sleeve, button-up blouse and strappy black wedges. Emma kept her look simple and went easy on accessories, adding only a brown belt and a Proenza Schouler PS1 bag to finish her outfit. Watch today's Fab Flash to hear more about her pulled-together everyday style. On Allison McNamara: H&M top.
At this point, leopard print has become a mainstay in our wardrobes, but that doesn't mean it can't get a bit of a makeover with the arrival of a new season. In light of Summer weather, we're embracing leopard print with a breezier tilt — just the way this styled celebrity trio is wearing it. In cool printed pants Beyoncé gives the exotic print a decidedly easy feel, while Ashley Madekwe injects her seasonal ensemble with an animal-printed accent piece via her Mulberry bag; and Krysten Ritter shows us just how sweet the pattern can feel on a '90s-style babydoll frock that's perfect for everyday. In any case, the key is relaxed silhouettes and lighter fabrics that deliver a cool-girl punch of print without overpowering your look. Loving the look?

One of the most fabulous Cannes Film Festival parties this year was the Gucci and Vanity Fair bash attended by Naomi Watts, Jennifer Connelly, Salma Hayek, and more. And while all the ladies looked fabulous in their Gucci frocks, Naomi stole the spotlight in her pale gray one-of-a-kind sequin-and-feather Gucci dress, which she paired with gold satin Gucci ankle-strap peep toes. Naomi's ensemble is an ultra-chic throwback to the '20s and one that's dying to be re-created at your next special event. Start with this Sue Wong feather-embellished cocktail dress ($530) and match it with Naomi's exact Gucci sandals but in leather ($625). If you prefer darker hues, try this equally flirty 28.5 black fringe dress ($632).
Taylor Swift stepped out in Brentwood working Joe's Jeans denim shorts in tapenade ($128), a white Joe's Jeans tie blouse, tortoise Elizabeth and James cat eye sunglasses ($185), and Coach's black Court bag ($258), creating the perfect daytime look. The singer further accessorized her sleek style with black bow flats and her signature red lipstick. Channel your inner starlet by pairing your mini denim shorts with a white blouse and classic accessories for a day at the farmers market or work darker hues — like this fierce black peplum Amanda Uprichard blouse ($130) and sky-high pumps — for a night on the town.
Just when we thought Soludos's collaboration frenzy couldn't get any better, the brand, founded by Nick Brown, enlisted Mara Hoffman to design a four-piece Summer collection of printed espadrilles. The collection, which just launched online today, features exclusive Mara Hoffman prints ranging from bold Aztec bird and Tiki stripes patterns, to Egyptian eye prints. We suggest pairing them with cute little white cotton dresses and denim cutoffs for a bona fide Summer look. Each pair costs $45; swoop up a pair before they sell out fast!
The Snow White and the Huntsman promotions continued in Mexico City over the weekend and this time around, Kristen Stewart dressed up her feet in a pair of hot neon-yellow Christian Louboutin transparent pumps ($795)! We're not used to seeing the actress in high heels since she usually prefers sneakers, like the red Converse she wore in Madrid, so it's nice to see her fancy feet for a change. Completing her look were a white cropped sleeveless Marios Schwab blouse, gray Vivienne Westwood trousers, a matching BaubleBar neon-yellow bracelet, and an Anita Ko gold spike bracelet.
